Candy Apple Farm

Bailey's preschool group went to the Candy Apple Farm this morning. I invited my friend Ashleigh and her daughter Lexi and also my Sister in law, Brandy and her 2 kids. We were all able to fit in my car (I love my Sequoia) and carpool together.

This is the neat apple press that made apple cider

The kids all watching the juice come out

Bailey's preschool group combined with the 3 year old class. That would be a huge class, luckily they are divied in two! Bailey is behind the boy in yellow with her face in the cutout

The 3 stooges, Bailey, Lexi and Nick

Nick absolutely loved using the apple picker. It was pretty heavy and way bigger than he was, but he used it on every apple he picked...Bailey just used her hand and picked the lower down apples

A very hungry group decided to have some yummy pizza at Idaho Pizza in Emmett

With all the apples we got, I think I will have to bake an apple pie! It was a fun field trip and we can't wait for the next one in October!

Bailey and cousin Sunny

My kids just love their cousin Sunny. Anytime they get a chance, they want to hold her. Its getting a little harder now that she's getting bigger and more mobile!

Pirate Day

Today was Pirate Day at Krispy Kreme! My sister in law, Brandy, told me about this yesterday. If you go to Krispy Kreme today and speak like a pirate, they give you a donut, but if you dress up like a pirate you get a dozen free. So, what do you think my kiddos said when I asked if they wanted to dress like pirates AND get free donuts...aarrr matey!

We had Bailey's friend Carly with us too!

I need to journal a few things about my kiddos since they seem to be growing so fast and way too soon.


Miss Bailey is now 4 1/2 years old. She started preschool again this year, twice a week. She loves her new teacher Miss Emily and likes play time. She was also so proud of herself when she went all the way under water at her swim lessons! Way to GO!She is very articulate when she speaks and has a great memory. She will tell me all about primary that had happened a few weeks prior. I really have to watch what I say around her, because she seems to remember everything I say! And... She wants to be an artist when she grows up.

She also is very girly and loves to put on my make up and dress up in dresses, high heeled shoes and have her hair curled....high maintenance already! But she is such a sweetie pie and my special little gal... Man, I love her to bits!

Last night I was putting Nick to sleep upstairs and asked her to pick up the front room a little (her toys were all over) When Trent walked in a few minutes later, not only was the whole front room clean, but she had a bucket full of water and was mopping the kitchen. What an awesome 4 year old.


Nicholas is 2 1/2 and just potty trained... except for a few accidents! He loves his motorcycle bike that we got off Craigslist and can ride all day long if allowed. He loves to keep up with his sister and tag along with her and her friends. His vocabulary is growing daily and I laugh at some of the things that he comes up with. He loves his dog Bentley and is very much a mommas boy.

He seems to be quite the ham and gets out of punishment by cracking a grin at his momma! He is pretty loud and can make shoppping not very fun at all. He also seems to be sick a lot. If there is some sickness going around, you can be sure that Nick will get it...and he absolutely HATES brushing his teeth. The dentist told me a year ago that if we just do it every night he will get used to it...not so, full on war every night! But, we sure do love this goofy yet very snuggly little guy and he gives great hugs and kisses!
